                                _______
                                

           Mr. Shelby, from the Committee on Appropriations, 
                        submitted the following

                                 REPORT

    The Committee on Appropriations submits the following 
report revising the section 302(b) allocation to its 
subcommittees for fiscal year 2019 set forth in Senate Report 
115-260 (May 24, 2018) and revised in Senate Report 115-267 
(June 6, 2018), Senate Report 115-273 (June 13, 2018), Senate 
Report 115-279 (June 18, 2018), Senate Report 115-280 (June 20, 
2018), and Senate Report 115-287 (June 27, 2018).
    Section 302(e) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, as 
amended, provides that at any time after a committee reports 
its allocations such committee may report to its House an 
alteration of such allocations. This report is submitted 
pursuant to this section.
    The Congressional Budget Act requires that as soon as 
practicable after a concurrent resolution on the budget is 
agreed to, the Committee on Appropriations shall submit to the 
Senate a report subdividing among its subcommittees the new 
budget authority and total outlays allocated to the Committee 
in the joint explanatory statement accompanying the conference 
report on such a resolution. Section 30103 of the Bipartisan 
Budget Act of 2018 (Public Law 115-123) provides for the 
Chairman of the Committee on the Budget to file an allocation, 
consistent with the terms of the Bipartisan Budget Act, to 
serve as a section 302(a) allocation for purposes of budget 
enforcement in the Senate. The allocation was filed by the 
Chairman of the Budget Committee on May 7, 2018 (Congressional 
Record pp. S2512-2513).
    The Committee notes that, under the terms of section 251 of 
the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, 
the Chairman of the Committee on the Budget may increase the 
302(a) allocation of the Committee on Appropriations if certain 
conditions relating to funding of specific programs are met. 
These provisions address such programs as: costs of emergencies 
(sec. 251(b)(2)(A)(i)); costs of overseas contingency 
operations (sec. 251(b)(2)(A)(ii)); continuing disability 
reviews and redeterminations (sec. 251(b)(2)(B)); healthcare 
fraud and abuse control (sec. 251(b)(2)(C)); reemployment 
services and eligibility assessments (sec. 251(b)(2)(E)); and 
disaster funding (sec. 251(b)(2)(D)).
    On May 24, 2018, the Committee on Appropriations filed an 
initial allocation to its subcommittees pursuant to its section 
302(a) allocation.
    On June 18, 2018, the Committee on the Budget filed a 
revised 302(a) allocation for the Committee (Congressional 
Record pp. S3978-3979) reflecting permissible increases in the 
fiscal year 2019 discretionary allocation. These reflect an 
increase of $921,000,000 in security budget currently 
designated for overseas contingency operations/global war on 
terrorism, plus associated outlays.
    The further revised allocations to subcommittees for 2019 
are set forth below:

                                                                  FURTHER REVISED SUBCOMMITTEE ALLOCATIONS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2019
